Snakes and Ladders: The Play of Consciousness in the Sand

Like a caduceus, the two paths of Jungian psychology and Siddha Yoga have circled one another in my psyche for forty years.  At moments they have connected, as the deep soul work of Jungian psychology touched India's vision of pure awareness.  I will present my midlife sandplay process as an approach to such a union of high and deep, West and East, chthonic snakes and spiritual ladders.

PowerPoint: PowerPoint slides are edited into the video.
